Looking Back at The Walking Dead Episode Three: Long Road Ahead

Posted on September 2012 by TelltaleGames

We've had quite a busy few weeks here at Telltale, and we're coming VERY close to having some more information on The Walking Dead's next episode, 'Around Every Corner,' written by Gary Whitta.

Before that, we have some things to share with you. Whether you've played Episode Three: Long Road Ahead or not, we wanted to share a peek at what some of the folks around the media have been saying about our group of survivors' journey down the tracks to Savannah.

Check out this latest trailer, and for those curious, that's actually a man you may know simply as 'Chuck' on the guitar.

 




 

Enjoy this for now, and note that we hope to have an update on the iOS version of Episode Three VERY soon as well.  We'd like to thank all of our fans for their support, and stay tuned right here, to our facebook, and to our twitter (@telltalegames) for details as they happen.

25 Years of Sam & Max

Created by Steve Purcell, Sam & Max began their exploits in the indie comic book world with a daring adventure to the Philippines called "Monkeys Violating the Heavenly Temple" (drawn entirely without reference). After a series of follow-up comic books, the critically-acclaimed Sam & Max Hit the Road adventure game released in 1993. The dog and rabbity-thing duo moved to television in an award-winning animated series, an Eisner Award winning webcomic, and games for virtually every kind of gaming system.  As for Steve Purcell, among many other ground-breaking projects, he has gone on to co-write and co-direct one of the top grossing films of 2012: Pixar/Disney’s “Brave.”

Telltale CEO Dan Connors said, “We’re very excited to celebrate Sam & Max’s anniversary. Steve Purcell created something unique, funny and enduring that continues to grab new fans every single year; now’s the perfect time for gamers to see what all the fuss is about and for current fans to complete their collections with these special offers.”

“Sam & Max have always had a happy home at Telltale”,
said creator Steve Purcell. “They just “get” what Sam & Max is about and so these games are the perfect place to enter their world. It’s wonderful and gratifying that after 25 years, Sam & Max continue to make people happy and I’m excited that these offers provide gamers with an opportunity to play the marvelously inventive games that Telltale made. Here’s to another 25 years!”

We'd like to thank our fans for sticking with us along our crazy freelance policing adventures over the years, and ask that you share your favorite stories, artwork, and picures of their exploits!

 

Tweet to @telltalegames and hashtag #SamMax25 with anything related to our heroes to celebrate this momentous occasion.  One random and lucky winner on twitter will win a limited edition, DELUXE Sam & Max statue! Oh my! Winner to be announced at the end of September... Best of luck to our biggest fans!

 

Join Us at PAX and Replenish Your Undead Survival Kit

Posted on August 2012 by TelltaleGames

PAX Prime is just a couple of days away and we're making the final preparations for what is sure to be our biggest one yet, but we wanted to give you the scoop on what you can get your hands on if you come see us at our The Walking Dead booth and Playing Dead LIVE panel!

PAX Prime Exclusive T-Shirts "How do I get these newfangled PAX Prime t-shirts?", you ask? It's easy.

On Twitter, tweet to @telltalegames with the hashtags #PAX and #IAmTheWalkingDead See the booth staff and let them know you've tweeted, and if you're among the first to claim them while supplies last, you've got yourself a free shirt! We have limited quantities of each day's shirt so make sure to visit us before we're all out! We'll have both shirts available on Sunday.

Turkey Leg Human Hand

There are are a few ways you can get your hands on these hands. They're very limited and yes, they're edible!

Friday: Confirm your attendance for our PAX Prime "Event" on The Walking Dead Facebook page (HERE) and be among the first to snag these savory human hand styled turkey legs! Stop by our booth on the Friday of PAX and show us proof that you've confirmed to attend and away you'll go, fleshy goodness and all. Remember, supplies are limited and we make no guarantees, but only the first to come with a print out or proof of confirmation on your mobile Facebook device will be first-served!

Saturday: Swipe the shirt we're handing out on Friday and come by our booth wearing it on Saturday while we're serving up our grub, while supplies last. Be sure to follow us on Twitter (@telltalegames) to find out when we're ringing the dinner bell.

Sunday: Much like the previous day's method, wear the shirt we gave away on Saturday to the show on Sunday and be one of the first to visit our booth while we're serving up the hands. Twitter (@telltalegames) is the best way to make sure you get in on the feast to know when we are giving away the legs for the folks wearing the #IAmTheWalkingDead shirts!

Remember, quantities on the hands are extremely limited. Wearing the previous day's shirt doesn't guarantee you a hand, but it's the only way you can get one!

Playing Dead: LIVE Exclusive Lee and Clem Poster

If our special presentation of Playing Dead: LIVE at 6:30pm on Friday in the Unicorn theater wasn't already enough to rouse the dead, the very limited edition poster we'll be giving away exclusively to attendees should do it! The individually numbered poster, featuring Lee and Clementine, is suitable for display in any situation, at the office, dorm room, locker, or even if you're holed up inside a pharmacy in Macon!

We're excited to see everyone at the booth and looking forward to sharing the experience of making an episode of Playing Dead with you at PAX Prime this year! See you in Seattle!

We're thrilled to bring the iOS version of Starved for Help, the episode that won GameSpy's Best Adventure Game award at E3 2012 on PC and was nominated for Overall Best Game of Show by IGN! With the first episode, A New Day, the iOS version has already won over critics like Mac Life, awarding the app an impressive 5/5 saying, "Walking Dead: The Game is already a game-of-the-year contender on other platforms, but it's an even better fit for iOS devices."

Robert Kirkman Gets Into The Gory and Emotional Details of The Walking Dead

Posted on August 2012 by TelltaleGames

A couple of the fellas at IGN.com and the PlayStation Blog recently had a chance to catch up with Robert Kirkman, the creator and mastermind behind the Eisner award-winning The Walking Dead as well as an executive producer on AMC's hit The Walking Dead TV show! They grilled him on a number of juicy subjects and I've dropped a few tidbits below to whet your appetite! 

IGN.com's Anthony Gallegos quizzed Robert Kirkman on what his inspiration was for the horrible world and dramatic downward spiral of The Walking Dead and he said (mostly) jokingly that "A big part of it is my horrible outlook on life. I always like to dwell on the negative and see the bad things... I feel like I'm very analytical and, uh, very depressed." If you keep up with the comic book series, you know that the world Rick Grimes and company live in is a miserable one. Read the entirety of IGN.com's piece on their interview with Robert Kirkman here!

Also, Sid Shuman from the PlayStation Blog wanted to know why Robert Kirkman chose Telltale to create the game based on The Walking Dead comic universe and Robert cited that part of it was the fact that our games are "...focused on the emotional, dramatic component" rather than "being chased by zombies". Reviewers have felt the same way, praising the game's emphasis on emotion, drama, and narrative, with publications like The New York Times saying in their review of Episode One, "...moments have more sadness and subtlety in them than other games muster in 40 hours." Check out the full PlayStation Blog interview with Robert Kirkman here!


We're expecting to have some anxiously awaited release date news in the near future for Episode Three - Long Road Ahead and the iOS release of Episode Two - Starved for Help, so stay tuned to the Telltale Blog for the latest as soon as it happens! Thank you again to everyone for your patience, we're looking forward to fans getting their hands on the next episode as soon as possible.

The Walking Dead: Episode Two Stats Revealed and an Episode Three Update

Posted on August 2012 by TelltaleGames

The Walking Dead: Episode Two – Starved for Help is chock-full of tough decisions for players to make, and if you've been following us on Twitter or keeping tabs on us on our Facebook page, you've probably seen some of the statistics we've been gathering from these choices and actions. Just like we did for Episode One, we've also created a video "tribute" to the decisions players like you have made in the latest episode of The Walking Dead, all so you can see where you stand amongst the masses on some of the game's dilemmas, including many bits that aren't reported at the end of the episode! Our favorite? Guess how many punches have been thrown at Andy St. John so far… Check out the video to find out!




In addition to this video, we wanted to give everyone a very important update. In July, we let everyone know that we were hard at work on Episode Three – Long Road Ahead, and our aim has been to have it ready towards the middle of August. Some of you may have thought this meant a hard date of August 15th, but we wanted to be as clear as we could to let you know the latest news on the release date. The team has finished play-testing and tuning, and we’re nearing final submission to our partners for certification on digital platforms. As soon as we hear back from our partners on when Episode Three will be available on Xbox LIVE Marketplace, PlayStation Network, PC, and Mac, we’re going to break that news to you right here.

We thank you for your continued support and enthusiasm as we make sure that this latest episode continues the heart-wrenching experience you’ve been enjoying with action and decisions that we hope are some of the most difficult, painful, shocking and horrifying that players will have ever seen in a video game. Until then, stay tuned for up to the minute updates on when our next episode will be available, and if you’re going to PAX Prime in Seattle at the end of this month, don’t miss our special presentation of Playing Dead LIVE!, where project leads Sean Vanaman and Jake Rodkin, and Gary Whitta, story consultant and writer of Episode Four: Around Every Corner discuss the series and answer questions from fans like you.

In the meantime, as the wait for Episode Three – Long Road Ahead nears its end, check out the latest stats video. Does knowing that thousands of other players made different choices get you chomping at the bit to try the episode their way? Hop back into the previous two episodes and get caught up before Episode Three hits in the coming weeks!

Announcing Playing Dead: LIVE at PAX Prime

Posted on August 2012 by TelltaleGames

The Penny-Arcade Expo is right around the corner - Aug 31-Sept 2 to be exact - and we're hard at work preparing an all-out awesome experience for The Walking Dead fans! While we're not quite ready to spill our guts about our PAX plans just yet, we are thrilled to announce one exciting facet of what we'll be up to in Seattle! Get ready for Playing Dead LIVE!

On the evening of Friday, August 31, we're taking over PAX's Unicorn Theatre and recording an episode of our The Walking Dead talk show, Playing Dead - and if you’re at PAX, you’ll get to be part of the fun! We're bringing along Playing Dead host A.J. LoCascio (also the voice of Marty McFly in our Back to the Future: The Game series), The Walking Dead project leads Sean Vanaman and Jake Rodkin, and story consultant Gary Whitta (writer of post-apocalypse movie The Book of Eli and the upcoming blockbuster After-Earth).

Playing Dead LIVE's illustrious guests will be talking all things The Walking Dead; delving into the process of crafting a story full of player choices, working with The Walking Dead's mastermind Robert Kirkman, staying true to the comic book series' dismally hopeless world, and more! Better yet, they'll be taking questions from you - the audience, so it's time to start jotting down what you're (un)dying to know about the game! We'll be posting the video of Playing Dead Live shortly after PAX!

If you're trekking to the Pacific Northwest for PAX later this month and dig The Walking Dead, this is an event you won’t want to miss! We'll be handing out an exclusive The Walking Dead surprise to all in attendance - so you'll want to get in line early to ensure your place in the limited-space theatre to get your hands on it!

We're looking forward to seeing you there and we’ll be revealing more of our PAX schemes soon! Stay tuned!

For weeks and weeks, many of you have been asking when we would finally be launching the first episode of The Walking Dead, ‘A New Day’ onto your brand spanking new iOS devices.  Up until now, we haven’t been able to give you a firm answer other than… ‘Soon!’  Today we are happy to announce that the wait for the undead apocalypse is *almost* finally over, and you will now be able to download the first episode of Walking Dead: The Game this Thursday, July 26th  from the App Store for $4.99! UPDATE: OUT NOW

Walking Dead iOS

We’ve spent a great deal of time carefully integrating our new interface design to create an even more intuitive experience with the touch screen as you explore a world ravaged by the undead based on the Eisner Award-winning comics from Robert Kirkman and Skybound Entertainment.  You’ll have full character control of Lee Everett as investigation points, actions, dialogue and decision making flows onscreen and is seamlessly integrated with the environments. 

Walking Dead iOS

If you’ve yet to experience The Walking Dead’s first episode, you’ll be in for some tough decisions while balancing some unique relationships in this morally grey world, and it will all be carried over into future episodes that uniquely tailor your play though of the story.  Once you’ve purchased this episode for $4.99 USD, you can then opt to purchase future episodes individually for $4.99 from within the application, OR you can pre-purchase the rest of the series as a Multi-Pack [Episode 2-5 Bundle] for $14.99, saving you a total of 25% off the cost of buying episodes 2-5 individually.

We thank all of our fans once again for their patience on this release, and we hope you’ll enjoy what we think will be the best The Walking Dead experience we could make!  Remember, your choices, no matter how seemingly large or small – may all have an impact on your story as you play along with this episode, and within future episodes.  Pay attention to the stats screen after the ending to see where you stood in the heat of the moment amid some critical moments among a vast network of other players trying to survive.  Also, if you’re playing on your phone, iPad, or anywhere in public or in a loud environment – we strongly recommend the use of headphones!  Lastly, we’ll leave you with one final game play hint for the uninitiated once you start playing… ‘Pillow!’

A Message From Telltale

Posted on July 2012 by TelltaleGames

Hello Everyone


First and foremost we want to thank everyone for their patience with regard to the launch of episode two of The Walking Dead. As you may know, it arrived later than anticipated and this has been a cause of frustration for everyone.
 
Our goal from day one has been to deliver your game episodes as quickly as possible, and where we can, simultaneously across all platforms and regions. We've been working closely with our phenomenally supportive partners to try to make this a reality. We will continue to work on this and furthermore, we will strive to improve our communication with you so that you know what’s happening. Please rest assured that we are doing all we can to get your game episodes to you as quickly as possible.
 
For many of you, the most important thing is to let you know when the next episode (Episode 3: Long Road Ahead) will be available, and although we can't give you an exact date at this time, we can say that episode three will be ready in the middle of August, and that we and our partners will do all that we can to release all platforms and regions as close together as possible.

The response to episode two has been overwhelmingly positive and we can't say enough about how much we appreciate everyone enjoying what we are creating. We’re truly humbled by your continuing support.

We look forward to your feedback on episode two and can’t wait for you to play episode three!

The Walking Dead is out of the gate on PC, MAC, Xbox LIVE Arcade and PlayStation Network, and the critics are already getting behind the first episode of the season, 'A New Day,' with high praise!

Early critical response to Telltale’s first episode of the series has gathered an intensely positive reaction from gaming critics across the web.  In their review, IGN.com awarded the episode an Editors' Choice nod, saying, “’A New Day’ is one of Telltale’s finest games,” also stating, “...This is a deeply personal and emotional experience, and that’s why it feels so right as a part of this franchise.  The site continued to claim, “…The Walking Dead Episode one has just about everything fans could want.”

Other critics also continued their praise, with Official Xbox Magazine also awarding the episode an Editors' Choice with a 9 out of 10, saying the episode was, “Slam-bang entertainment,” adding that, “Everything just feels right” with its “Striking art style and cinematic presentation.” 

Gaming site Polygon also gave the game an impressive 9 out of 10, saying, "With choices that matter and intensity to spare, Telltale Games delivers one of its best efforts to date." They continued to say, "...the first episode of The Walking Dead held me in as I was thrown from one story-twisting, heart-stopping conflict to another, disaster threatening if I looked away from the screen even for a moment." The reviewer also claimed the episode was, "...one of the most intese gaming experiences in my recent memory," and that, "So many games have teased a truly "interactive" narrative, but I can think of none that have delivered this well.

To kick off the launch of the first episode this week, Telltale games also released an all-new trailer, focusing in on the story of Lee Everett as he begins his chance at redemption in the first episode amid a world over-ridden by an undead apocalypse bringing out both the brightest and the darkest sides of humanity.

Glenn is a likeable and resourceful guy that's always willing to help when he can - even at expense of his own safety. After not being able to get in touch with his family, Glenn hightails it to Atlanta where he will one day meet Rick Grimes. 

Hershel is an old-fashioned man that's suspicious of outsiders and skeptical of the reports that the world has fallen to the undead. He's a little hard to read, but holds his family and their well-being close to heart. Hershel, and his farm, will bear witness to a series of events that affect the lives of many others.

Meet The Walking Dead Survivors: Lee and Clementine

Posted on April 2012 by TelltaleGames

The Walking Dead's launch on Xbox Live, PlayStation Network, PC, and Mac is creeping closer and we want you to get to know some of the unfortunate souls that live in the world after the dead rise from the grave. 

 

First up is Lee Everett. Lee hails from Macon, Georgia but finds himself in Atlanta (on the way out actually) as he's being transported to prison. Lee's life took a turn for the worst after being convicted of murdering the man that had been getting a little too close to his wife. Lee's a strong yet pensive man that will fight hard when it comes to that.

Clementine comes from a loving family. She's smart and can hold her own if necessary - known to spend hours building elaborate make-believe tales in her treehouse rather than watch cartoons or play with dolls. She's a brave little one but closes up if she gets scared. Clementine is a girl of substance, letting her actions speak louder than her words.

Stay tuned for more updates and information about our game based on Robert Kirkman's award-winning comic series The Walking Dead coming soon!
